Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Cover shiitake mushrooms with plenty of boiling water. Stand 20 - 30 minutes until soft, drain, then slice thinly. (Discard or reserve liquid for other use)
Place chicken broth, ginger, soy sauces, chilli, sugar, pepper and sesame oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
Once simmering, add chicken, cover and reduce heat so it's simmering.
Cook 10 minutes, remove chicken and shred.
Add vinegar, shiitake, wood ear mushrooms, bamboo shoots, tofu and shredded chicken into the soup.
Stir, simmer for 10 minutes.
Mix cornflour with water. While stirring soup at a medium pace, slowly pour the cornflour mixture in (ensures no lumps).
When it starts simmering again, stir constantly and slowly pour egg in a thin stream - this will create the signature "egg ribbons".
Taste - add salt if desired, more chilli if you want.
Add shallots and serve!
